Dave Bruskas

Campus Pastor

Life Story

I grew up in a loving but irreligious family, only attending church services on holidays. My mom was struggling with alcoholism when a friend invited her to study the Bible. She quickly realized her need for forgiveness and placed her faith in Jesus. Before long, my dad also believed, and soon I found myself in church every Sunday. I did my best to resist believing, but I eventually heard the gospel clearly. I felt convicted of my sin and realized my desperate need for forgiveness. For the first time in my life, I understood that God extended His righteousness to me through Jesus. I professed my faith in Him and immediately sensed the presence of God in my life.

After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary, I served a church replant in Seattle and then I returned home and planted a church in the heart of Albuquerque, New Mexico. This church eventually became the first out-of-state campus of Mars Hill Church.

In 2010, I joined the executive elder team at Mars Hill and served in this capacity until the church dissolved at the end of 2014. In January 2015, I returned to Mars Hill Albuquerque to transition the campus into an independent church called North Church. I served as the Lead Pastor of North Church until 2018.

My wife, Kara, and I have been married for 30 years. We have four daughters, two son-in-laws and three grandchildren.

Hope for The Village Church

My hope for The Village is that we would be a people who wholeheartedly love God, purposely live together in community, sacrificially serve those around us in need and faithfully make disciples of our neighbors and the nations.
